Humidity tolerance, high heat deflection temperature and low curl are some of the reasons Brookfield Rapid Solutions chose to use a new generation of ProtoFunctional resin to produce prototype models of a P12 battery charger for the Apple Titanium computer. DSM SOMOS 7120 was developed for use with stereolithography and is part of the DSM SOMOS 7100 series. It produces exceptional, undistorted, thin walls and down-facing surfaces, and exhibits good processing latitude.

The P12 battery charger, designed with the SOMOS 7120 resin, is one of the few commercially available battery chargers using the Dallas chip that identifies the battery chemistry and state of charge, resulting in improved safety, charging speed, performance and battery life.

The stereolithography process was chosen for the speed with which it enables evaluation of functional marketing and manufacturing issues. This product went from concept to full production in only eleven weeks.
